            uh lol

            210 is considered perfect.

            180 is the service limit.

              compresion too LOW? that could be the head gasket leaking.

Pressures and stresses of all kinds thermal and mechanical loading across the board escalate to extreme levels. A Chevrolet 5.7-liter LS1 V8 with this much specific power (horsepower per cubic inch) would be making 2,137 hp

                          They probably arent either:

                          Following proper torquing procedure

                          OR

                          Have reused the head bolts too many times. They do stretch. I personally DONT reuse head bolts. I always get new ones.

                            Sounds like you have a warped head to block surface. I would resurface the head just enough to get it flat and do the same to the block. If you have and waviness, you will blow head gaskets left and right.


                            Also, get a set of ARP head stubs and torque all the tighten the nuts to 65-70 ft/lbs.
